Re: Use up the food you have: Commitment 2009

It's taken a bit of doing to only buy what I really know I will eat. I was buying produce, intending to cook this or that. I was just putting pressure on myself to eat more healthfully. I'm not very keen on washing and chopping vegetables. My neighbors thought I was "off" and tried very hard to conv...

Use up the food you have: Commitment 2009

I bought a tiny fridge some time ago, to help ensure that I'd always use what I have. Nothing would go bad, nothing would get forgotten. I'm getting there. (I gave away a giant, fancy refrigerator.) With a little planning and diligence, I intend to have 2009 be a use-food-wisely year. :flower: Maybe...

Re: Who am I? (just for fun)

I can do it, if that's all right. I'll PM Annpan, so she knows who I am.

Okay, who am I?

Re: Homemade toothpaste

I keep a little custard dish full of baking soda on the counter in the bathroom. I just dip my brush in. (Or scoop out a bit for a bath.)

When I travel, I use a small container with a screw-on lid.

Re: Fluoride in tank water. To dose or not to dose..

Iodine and potassium iodide or good for making water potable. Also, hydrogen peroxide is used for swimming pools. I've heard that professional swimmers don't/won't swim in pools with chlorine in them. My vote is to use something other than flouride. It's not healthy stuff. There's a lot of documenta...

Re: wrappings for sandwiches

I have seen fancy reusable sandwich wraps - basically a piece of fabric (about a foot square)with a plasticy coating on one side and a few poppers to keep it closed - you could make one... could be very fashionable :king: Ann pan, those sound great! I don't know if the plastic bags from the store a...

Re: What is your favourite cake?

Plain cake, just plain. Sometimes called a yellow cake. Fancier versions use more butter, such as the 1-2-3 cake, or a pound cake.
